Feature Film Reflection Sport Psychology

Feature Film Reflection

Please choose one film you have not seen from the following list: 

  • A League of Their Own (1992)
  • Rudy (1993)
  • Coach Carter (2005)
  • Million Dollar Baby (2004)
  • Warrior (2011)
  • Murderball (2005)

*Murderball is rated R, but if the language and sexual content would not offend you, I highly recommend this documentary about quad rugby.

Identify two short clips (~3 minutes each) from a feature film that depicts key topics outlined in the syllabus.  In your reflection of the feature film and those specific clips, please include:

  1. A brief overview of the chosen clips
    1. Contextualize the scenarios with respect to the story
  2. Highlight the psychological theory that can be used to explain what is happening in each clip
  • Include key research (recent journal articles) you could use to explain what you are seeing
  • Be specific! Reference  scholarly sources to confirm your interpretation of the clips and application of the theories or concepts.
  1. Describe how you might use these clips as a sports psychologist.
    1. How? Who? When? Why?
